The 19-year-old striker was given the nod in attack ahead of Ryan Noble for Saturday's defeat to Stevenage and the latter has now returned to parent club Sunderland.

"Charlie is someone I'm determined to keep at the club," Hughes told the Hartlepool Mail. "He trains properly and is a good character, he's a lovely kid.

"He's a good footballer and I would like to think we can get the deal to keep him here."

Hughes was quick to praise the departing Noble, who scored just once during his stay at Victoria Park, but admitted he was just too similar to his current options.

"I spoke to Kevin Ball and we are thankful to Sunderland for the relationship we have got with them," he added.

"But Ryan will go back. I feel Charlie is similar to Stevie Howard and we have Luke James back who is similar to Ryan, if not as good a goalscorer as him."

his specializing in mediocrity will only stop when Wenger and his entire back room staff are cleared out. Dortmund are everything Arsenal should be; in fact they're everything Arsenal thought they were, until they met this supreme doppelg nger.

isgusting. Shambolic. Pathetic. Embarassing. Inept. Below par. Painful. Horrible. Sickening. Frustrating. Wasteful. 11 adjectives to describe the 11 professionals on the pitch. I have never been so frustrated. Losing I can handle, but negligence and years of the same mistake is just becoming a joke now. One that isn't even funny anymore.
